I have a close family member who had a stroke in January. The rehab process has been very slow and has almost come to a stand still. He has good days and bad days. Some days, he can go to therapy and walk with assistance. On the bad days, he can't even push himself up out of his wheelchair. In addition, he seems to be unaware of his disabilities - like he is blocking them out. He seems to think that he can get up and do anything that he could before the stroke. He can't, of course. Has anyone else had any experience with something like this? I would appreciate any comments on this. Thanks.
Sue
